Utterly unique property with an on-site generator and its own water supply, perfect for eco-friendly guests looking to completely unwind in rural Wales. Warming wood burner and generous outdoor space for winter and summer.
Set in the remote green countryside of West Wales near Myddfai (1.5 miles), at the western gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park, this dog-friendly property sleeps six guests. As the former gamekeeper’s cottage to LLwynywormwood House in Llandovery (3 miles), this holiday hideaway is packed with period features - it’s the place to switch off from modern distractions and recharge in the surroundings of nature. You’ll find a pub and a shop within reach (3 miles), and a Wednesday farmers’ market in Myddfai.
Head up a rugged forest track, and enter this charmingly round 16th-century stone cottage where country-style interiors, and plush furnishings enhance the ancient walls. Switch on Victorian gas lighting and unwind in the cosy living room where there’s no TV or Wi-Fi, so your family can step back in time and enjoy the timeless art of conversation. Sink into easy sofas by the toasty wood burner, and dine on delicious home-cooked meals. Enjoy morning coffees in the conservatory where you can look out and spot a variety of feathered friends. Clamber up cottage-style stairs to find the four pretty bedrooms. Outside, you’ll find a large lawned garden (note: steep drop into a lower field), and dine alfresco on warm evening.
You’re perfectly placed to explore the delights of the Brecon Beacons and verdant Carmarthenshire. Hop on your mountain bike or don walking boots, and head out to explore this magical region. Enjoy a wildlife walk along the River Towry (2 miles) with your best friend by your side. Enjoy good pub food in the pretty market town of Llandovery, where you can hop on the Heart of Wales train route which runs alongside a new long-distance walking trail, passing through dramatic mountain scenery, forests, meadows, villages and riverside, through Shropshire, Powys, Carmarthenshire and Swansea.
